As Nevadans line up at the polls today in the state’s GOP presidential primary, one candidate is waaaaaaaay ahead.

This is clearly shaping up to be a race for second place between Cruz and Rubio, neither of whom are eligible to hold the office of President.

Second place in a presidential race is the same as last place.

The Nevada Republican caucus comes right on the heels of the South Carolina primary. The caucus takes place Tuesday, February 23 just a few days after South Carolina. It marks the last caucus or primary before Super Tuesday on March 1.

Donald Trump heads to Nevada after a South Carolina primary victory. Marco Rubio edged out Ted Cruz for second place in the Palmetto State. Jeb Bush announced he is dropping out of the race after a poor showing in South Carolina.

Early Nevada polls have Trump with a sizable advantage in the state. Nevada has historically had a low turnout which makes the voting hard to predict prior to the caucus. The situation is fluid as the caucus could end up differently than the early projections.

Here’s a look at the latest GOP polls in Nevada:
